WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 1865.
It will be seen by to-day's paper that
the military authorities have found it
neceiaar,y for the welfare of emigrants,
to issue orders for all trains going West
to take the road on the South side of
Platte river, crossing at Plattsmouth.
Nearly all the emigrants and freighters
started West from this place previous to
the issue of this order having found
from experience, of themselves and oth
ers, that this was by far the most practi
cal route. Owing to the late depreda
tions of the Indians, Gen. Conner '.thinks
it prudent to concentrate the travel as
much as possible, in order that he may
give ample protection to all. There are
a sufficient number of troops on the
road leading West from this place to
insure all trains a peaseful transit
through the country 'nfested by Indians.
Oen. Conner is thoroughly conversant
with their haunts and habits, and emi
grants need have no fears so loDg as
they follow his directions.
The following despatches were recei
ved from Capt. Moer, together with a note
stating that they had been furnished to
Omaha papers, and they had refused to
publish them. Our neighbors should
have more regard for the welfare of
those who are seeking homes in the west,
andthoeo who are engaged in trans
porting supplies to the mines, and not
refuse to publish news that is of vital
importance to them, merely because it
doei not benefit Omaha.

The trade of Plattsrncuih v.i;h the
Western mines is increasing more rap
idly, probably, than any other town on
the Missouri river. No one who has
not witnessed it, would propably credit
the fact that more goods have been
shipped from this point West, the pres
ent season, than from any other town
on the river. Never until the present
season has the advantages which this
route possesses been made thoroughly
known among freighters and emi
grants. But "truth is mighty, and will
prevail." Nearly every freighter from
North of the Plat'.e, have come here
the present season, for the reason that
they save time, trouble and money by
traveling this route. We have no dis
position to speak of other towns on the
river in a manner that would work
them any injury, although there has
been a persistent effort on the part of
some of our neighbors to entirely ig
nore the existence of Plaitsmoiuh aud
the South Plf.tte Route. This desire
has arisen from the fact that we pos
sess more real advantages for the em
igrant and freighter than are to be
found on any other route, and the only
hope for rival towns to succeed wa? ia
keeping the public in ignorance as to
the state of things.

FEk032 THE V. ST.
We make the following extract from
a correspondence of the Omaha Repub
lican, dated at Fort Kearney, May
"Last Friday we were startled again
by the news of fresh attacks of In
diaus. The coach fiom Atchison was
twelve hours behind time on that day,
and when it arrived in the evening it
brought here one wounded man ani the
following news :
A party cf soldiers were on their
way from Fort Leavenworth to this
place, and while traveling alonz the
road, about thirty-five or forty miles
east of Fort Kearney, were suddenly
attacked by a Laud of Indians. They
killed two men, and wounded six oth
ers. Four men were ai! that escaped
unhurtofthe party of fifteen men.
Most cf the men were en'isted mem
bers of the ofd Regiment U. S. Volun
teer Infantry; two of the men belonged
to the 1st Nebraska Cavalry. Hon of
them had been iu the hospital at Fort
Leavenworth, and were on thfir m
cut here to join their regi.nents. The
The worft and most depiorabie feature
of this affair, m, tint U. S. so'diers
should be setit from one fort to another
far distant fort, through a country
known to be infested with hostile In
dians, without a weapon of any kind to
defend themselves whh. When the
attack was made upon them they were
completely at the mercy of the Indian-.
It is a wonder that the Indians did not
more completely destroy them. One
man they scalped alive; they had struckJ
him on the back of the head with an
old sword stunning him only and then
they took his scalp; his hair being red
was doubtless a tempting color. Thev
scalped none of the others. The man
that w as scalped is here now, and in a
fair way of recovery.
From more recent news, it appears
that several of the stage stations were
attacked also at the same time. The
prudence and forethought of Col. Liv
ingston in placing troops at the various
stage stations improper lime, prevent
ed their success ia their attacks oa the
Immediately on the news being re
ceived here, all the troops that could
be mounted were sent oil" forthwith to
chase and hunt up the murderers. m It
is hardly possible that our troops will
catch them, as their horses can by far
outrun ours, and they are so cunning
or eluding. Our men will do their
best to get at them, however; and if
they should escape, it will nut be the
fault of the men in pursuit.
The overland stage is very well
guarded now. At every station about
10 U. S. soldiers are stationed. With
the arms and ammunition they have
they can defend the stations against a
large body of Indians. Besides the
men at the stations, a mounted guard
escorts every coach fro-n station to sta
tion. At Kearney, all travelers aud
freighters going westward have to or
ganize in bodies of about 100 men to
gether for mutual safety and protection.
The Indians cannot now have it all
their own way, as they did list fail and
winter. If they make many attacks,
they will certainly get discouraged on
acccount of the opposition they meet
with. Whether they will be tired of
their fruitless war, and seek for peace,
or whether they will still watch their
opportunities to attack where defense
is weak, is of course too hard to
There are plenty of troops on the
road now for defensive purposes. The
overland route can be ably defended
from attacks. What offensive meas
ures generally are to be adopted
against the Ir.dians, remains to be
Col. Livingston has received a tele
gram that the Hon. Schuyler Colfax
and his distinguished traveling compan
ions will leave the Missouri river to-
morrow morning, the 23d inst. A
stronT escort under the command of
that worthy officer, Capt. Lee P. Gil
lette, has already been detailed, and
have gone east for the purpose cf guar
ding this distinguished party through
the danger that is liable to travelers
on the road. The party will arrive at
Fort Kearnev some time in the latter
part of the week.
r5Gen. Butler in sneaking of
prominent traitors who had been edu
cated at the Military Academy at pub
lic expense, winds up thus:
'Shall we not by example teach ev
ery officer who deserts his lkg that he
shall suffer the same penalty for de
sertion which the Government and the
law has enforced upon so many of our
soldiers for the same crime ?"
VTliat Sliall we ! Willi Tlicm?
If there be any manhood among tha
ex-slaveholders, we shall soon find ii
out. We mean the manhood which
cheerfully attacks the difficulties cf
peace and wins victories not less re
nowned thau those of war. It is en
couraging to the North, which is ready
to do its full share, and perhaps more,
of the work, to find a man like Gen
Johnston declaring thut prominent gen
tlemen in the South 'fully understand
that the 'institution has gone up, and
will accommodate themselves to the
new organization." The sooner all
Southern employers, whether "gentle
men or not, understand "the new or
ganization," the better for Southern
production and prosperity. For Gen
Johnston, not caring to exhibit himself
in the chararter of an inflamed don
key, also admitted that "it would be
more profitable to hire free labur than
to employ slave labor." It almost takes
away one's breath to notice how mi
raculously fast the truth travels when
the roads are moderately cleared from
the rubbish cf error. Ten years ago,
a planter of Gen. Johnston's mind in
the premises would have been forced
to run for his life from his exasperated
neighbors bringing out the feather-bags
All the reclaimed Rebels, however,
are not so wise as Gen. Johnston. One
moody officer excUimeJ, in the hear
ing of our lialeigh correspondent,
"Now you have freed them, we want
you to take them." This is the very
idiscy of political economy. A man
with no better notion of the principles
of production than this, is not fit to
own a quarter of an acre of land upon
the very extremity of Cape Cod. He
might as well ask us to take his muck
heaps, his plows, his horses, his oxen,
his cows and his cash. We take it for
granted that somebody must raise corn,
cotton, tobacco and rice, for we do not
believe in the spontaneous growth of
these vegetables. Wt: have, ail our
lives, been told that th'$ blacks alone
are fit for this kind of work. At any
rate, they have done a great deal of it
under the impetus of the whip; and
Gen. Johnston thinks they will do a
great cLjal more under the influence of
fair wages. We are realiy happy to
agree with the General. If he wishes
so make himself nsef.ii, he cannot too
often impress his views upon his fellow
oitinrns, whwstt e es are on! j' Iiair open
ed. That simpletnuh which In ut
tered in Raleigh is worth more, "lias
more sense in it, has more truth in it,
has more salvation for the Sjnth in it
than all the tabular demonstrations of
De Bow, all the dogmas ot Calhoun,
all the political theories of Davis, and
a!l the false and tawdry rhetoric of
Southern stump craturs in general.
There are wonderful crops in those
little ser tences. We will forgive Gen.
Johnston a great deal if he will go on
them continually. Our only
regret is that it required years of war,
with its waste, mortality and distr ess,
to open the General's mind to such
wholesome convictions. Belter late
than never !
No doubt there art? a great many
worthless fellows, the spawn of the
slave system, feeble-minded and un
commonly lazy, sensual to the center,
peripatetic nuisances, who will be in
every busy worker's way. and who
will always be blind to the beauties of
the new system. Fortunately a great

of the assassination, there were in the
theater, ovtr one hundred persons who
had direct or mdirect knowledge of
what was to happen. Many of these
persons had a victim selected, but their
part of the muiiier failed, from the
